I agree

the "savings" according to the hwr app is only theoretical. heat loss around the door, flue adjustment or just the time the door is open during gathers can loose more heat than additional fiber can save.

there is a finite amount of heat that can be saved compared to the unlimited potential of better marketing, product design or production methods.

the shop I rent now has free unmetered electricity. it's nice to have but the total value has a limit. if I built a small furnace for fiddling around, it wouldn't be worth more than several hundred a month. it's nice to have in the winter when we turn on the 5kw overhead radiant heaters.

if I could come up with the perfect "pet rock" product, energy overhead would be a minor concern. marketing would be the big expense. and new sails.
